1Introduction
You chose ControlPlex® Rack, a comprehensive, future-oriented protection system which combines safety,
user convenience and service friendliness. It is a power distribution, measurement and control system which
provides electronic and, in the event of a short circuit, current-limiting protection of various loads. By means
of an internal bus system and an additional, hot-pluggable control interface module (optional), each load
can remotely be controlled and monitored. In addition it allows recording of measuring data of every single
load. Besides providing overcurrent and short circuit protection, it increases system availability by a multiple,
because it disconnects faulty loads quickly, selectively and without voltage dips.
In connection with the control interface module type RCI10 the ControlPlex® Rack system can be connected
to a centralised management system (control computer). For this purpose an Ethernet interface is made
available with SNMP v1, v2c or v3 protocol. The required private MIB for embedding is part of the delivery
scope. An additional possibility for a centralised or also local monitoring/control is provided by the integral
web server, which can be used without additional software on the control computer by means of the web
browser. In addition great importance was attached to system security, against illegal access. Therefore the
configuration of the RCI10 sub-assembly is effected via a secure Secure Shell (SSH) surface. It also offers a
great number of configuration options to increase system security.
Thanks to its system properties the ControlPlex® Rack is the perfect solution for smart protection, control
and energy measurement for DC-supplied minus switching system cabinets. Typical applications include
• System cabinets of any kind in telecommunications with DC -48 V or DC -60 V rated supply
• Server cabinets in IT centres with equipment for DC -48 V or DC -60 V rated supply
• System cabinets for mobile radio and television for DC -40 V to DC -72 V
• Protection and control of illuminated advertising with a power supply of DC -48 V
Further descriptions of the ControlPlex® Rack systems - mounting and connection procedures for the hardware as well as an instruction for start-up and trouble-shooting of the individual components can be found in
the manual ControlPlex® Rack mounting and operation instructions.
This document contains a configuration and operation instruction for the software of the Remote Control
Interface sub-assembly RCI10. You will learn more about
•How to configure the RCI10 sub-assembly via the SSH surface for the first operation and how to adjust it
to your requirements.
•How to use the integral web surface for monitoring and controlling the ControlPlex® Rack; system
• How to embed the ControlPlex® Rack system into a management system

Start-up: Configuration by means of web browser surface
The web browser configuration window shows the presently active factory settings. The tab Configuration
contains three tabs (System Settings, Feed Settings, Fuse Settings). This chapter describes the setting options
of the System Settings
Please note that, depending on the internal factory-set configuration or the configuration carried out by you
via the SSHv2 interface, some functions may not be available.
Please make a note of all configuration changes with the newly entered values.
Please carry out the following adjustments in the category HTTP:
•
Change the user name under Login
•
Change the password under Password
The password is not shown (asterisks). No password is set in the event of no entry.
•Change the display language if required under Language. You can choose between the languages German
and English.
In the category ETHERNET you can e.g. adjust the IPv4 address settings. In addition you can
•Activate the DHCP protocol (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) in your local network. Please select
the check box Use DHCP.
After activation of the changed settings the DHCP protocol will automatically assign a new IPv4
address to the RCI10 sub-assembly. Please make a note of this address if you wish to connect
your configuration PC again with the system at a later date (without network). You then have
to enter https://<new IPv4 address> as URL into the address bar of the web browser.
<new IPv4 address> = the above noted address.
hould you deactivate the check box Enable v4, no IPv4 address will be considered valid any longer, i.e. you
S
do no longer have access to the RCI10 sub-assembly via IPv4. You will then always have to indicate an IPv6
address.
•
If your network does not support IPv6, we recommend deactivating the check box Enable v6.
•If a DNS server (Domain Name Server) is available in your network, please enter the DNS URL under DNS
Server.
In the category MISC you can
•
enter a name for the ControlPlex® Rack system (System name).
•
indicate a contact person (System contact)
•
indicate an installation site (System location)
•In addition you can determine the time zone (Time zone: 1 = CE winter time, 2 = CE summer time) and
changeover summertime/wintertime (DST).
Date and clock time cannot be set because the factory settings include an NTP server (time server, network
time protocol). The RCI10 sub-assembly will automatically get the valid time information from the NTP server.
It may, however, happen that the NTP server cannot be reached by your local network, see chapter: 6.4 Startup: Table of SSH configuration parameters and factory settings
•
Click on SAVE to save the changed values. If you do not save, all changes will be lost.
•Click on the button REBOOT: EXECUTE to activate all changes, confirm with OK. The RCI10 sub-assembly
carries out a reset with a re-load of the changed parameters. Re-booting may take up to 60 seconds. During
this time you do not have a connection to the RCI10 sub-assembly.
12
The reset will not affect the plugged in circuit protectors ESX300-S, i.e. your connected loads remain active
during the RCI10 re-start.
•Re-load the page in your web browser after approx. 60 seconds. Click on the Reload function of the web
browser. Now all carried out changes should be activated and visible.

time clock available). A possible solution is the configuration of an NTP server, please also see chapter 6.3
Start-up: Configuration via SSH surface.
26
If the function “Fuse state after reset” is “OFF” and the check box activated, the load output of the circuit
protector will not automatically be switched ON in the event of a supply voltage failure and voltage restoration or after a re-boot of the RCI10 sub-assembly. This function shall prevent an automatic re-start, e.g.
of a motor, in the event of a power failure (safety-relevant function).
he function “Monoflop” was implemented particularly for “power on/off” of equipment and it keeps up
T
the physical connection between the ControlPlex® Rack system and the control computer, i.e. even in
the event of an interruption of the connection when switching off the load output will be reconnected after
a pre-set time and the connection will be restored.
hould you wish to de-activate the set values, but you do not yet know if you will need them again at a later
